Etsy is the go-to spot for cool out-of-the-box items. 

When it comes to personalized and unique items, Etsy is the best place to shop! There are so many wonderful items, it can be difficult to even know what to search for. That’s why the Hip2Save team is sharing our feedback about cool things to buy on Etsy!


Here are 10 of our team’s current favorite Cool Etsy items:


1. I bought my sister this necklace of her favorite furry friend.

I am absolutely in love with these pet necklaces! Whether it’s a memorial for a pet that’s passed on or just to showcase your furry friend, simply attach a picture of your cat or dog in a message to the seller and wait for a super sentimental, stunning necklace.

My teammate Emily bought a similar pet portrait keychain for her friend after her dog passed, which she was able to also make into a necklace. ❤️


2. Lina grabbed these wooden name tags for the holidays.

Although we’re a little past the holidays, considering snagging these wooden tags while they’re on sale for 40% off! If you’re looking for decor to display right now, we can’t get enough of all the handcrafted wooden pieces from this shop. They have wooden signs for all sorts of occasions, making a gorgeous staple in one’s home.


3. Sara loves using this flower press kit with her daughter.

HeartwoodandRose Flower Plant Press Kit $42.75 (regularly $47.50)

When it comes to cool things to buy on Etsy, this flower plant press kit takes the cake! It is a wonderful way to transform your favorite flowers into a stunning piece of art, and Sara absolutely loves her kit!

It includes 4 stainless steel wing nuts, 4 stainless steel bolts, 4 stainless steel washers, 10 pieces of Premium cardstock paper, and 6 pieces of Upcycled Cardboard.

“My daughter’s favorite thing is to pick me flowers, and I always hated throwing them away. I was telling a good friend of mine how I wanted to get a flower press one day to preserve all these beautiful memories and about a month later this showed up on my doorstep from said friend. 😭

It’s honestly the most beautiful and thoughtful gift I have ever received and I just cried when I opened it. I have pressed every single flower since and many have become priceless hanging artwork in our home. I’ll cherish this gift forever and have it on my bookshelf as a constant reminder of my beautiful girl and my beautiful friend. ❤️” – Sara


4. This personalized name necklace is a team fave!

MacKenzie Treasury Dainty Name Necklace $32.80+ (regularly $41+)

Our team loves these name necklaces so much, we have our own product review about them! We love that you can add up to six names to each necklace, so it stands out beyond your standard personalized jewelry. You can also customize how long you want your chain to be and the type of metal!


5. We’re loving these emerald green coasters.

I believe crystals make for the most beautiful home decor pieces, and these geode agate emerald coasters are no exception. The gold accents really make these pop, and they’re functional and aesthetically pleasing to look at! The price above is for a set of 2, but you can purchase a set up to 6.

Whether you’re in the market for a housewarming gift or the perfect addition to your home, you must check out Uncommon Art Decor. If emerald isn’t your color, this seller has tons of other options that range in color, style, and variety tailored to your taste.

These coasters sent us down a rabbit hole of acrylic coasters on Etsy; check out these other options we’re loving:

6. Lina’s digital download makes the perfect statement piece.

When it comes to decorating, a digital download is super convenient! Lina ordered this Monstera Leaves Wall Art, which is available as a 3840 x 2160 digital download, for her Samsung Frame TV. With these measurements, your display will be adaptable with all Samsung Frame sizes!


7. This custom charcuterie board will wow your guests.

Personalized Cutting/ Charcuterie Board $29.92 (regularly $39.99)

Here at Hip2Save, we absolutely LOVE putting all sorts of appetizers on a charcuterie board, and they’d look even better on a custom board! I gifted my mom a similar one last year for her birthday, and she absolutely loves it.

The best-selling board is made of gorgeous wood and it’s sold by an Etsy Star Seller! If that wasn’t enough, be sure to check out the raving reviews about how stunning the board is in real life.


8. Stacy gifted these striking car key covers for her niece’s birthday.

Not only do they look cute, but the covers will also protect your keys from scratches and any other damage.

“I love this so much that I already bought one for my sister for Christmas! It’s great for your on the go with you cup! I’m always looking for an extra hand because I always seem to have too much to carry and being able to hold a handle has made things so much easier!” Etsy Reviewer

    I LOVE Etsy! A lot of my gifts come from Etsy. Would you guys consider doing an Etsy monthly update with cool finds or your favorites. It’s supporting small businesses and you can find more interesting items. Thanks! (I would gladly share some of my favorites to help with this piece.)

    So random, but does anyone know what font is on that cutting board? I love it so much!

    I’m a person that HATES paying for shipping. I avoided Etsy because of shipping costs. However, this last year I have found so many unique products that I absolutely love, that I now 100% feel the shipping costs of individual items is worth it for me. I found some amazing gifts for Christmas on Etsy that everyone loved (even ones mentioned here, like the personalized Amazon box ornament). I just ordered a new calendar from Etsy and I’m in love with it. I love supporting these small business owners. Don’t get me wrong, I still love the convenience and selection of Amazon, but my Etsy purchases make my heart feel a little happier. Keep the Etsy posts coming!

  9. Samanthology

    I LOVE Etsy!! I get so many wonderful gifts there and used to have my own shop. Can this type of post be a regular thing?! I love seeing ideas for future gifts

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks for the feedback, Samanthology. We do plan on updating it monthly! Let us know if you know of something amazing!

  10. Sarah P

    I love this post! I have an Etsy shop of my own (we make little wooden puzzles!), and I love finding new shops to support!

    • Stacy F (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Ooh, Sarah P, I love wooden puzzles. What’s your shop?

      • Sarah P

        It’s ajoyfulchaoscreation 😊

          Thanks! I am checking this out now!

    • Karen

      I have an Etsy shop too. I seel crochet and knitted items. My best seller is an opossum plastic bag holder.

  11. Gigi

    Thanks for doing this post! I sell small paintings on Etsy. It is hard to compete with the big box stores that sell mass produced art.

  12. Tina Straseske

    Love, love, love Etsy!!! I just had some memory bears made out of material for my mom and siblings from my dad’s shirts and jeans that passed away. They are so beautiful and the care and love the seller put into making them definitely shows!!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      SO very sorry for your loss, Tina. 💖Thanks for taking a moment to share that with us! SO glad you were pleased with how they turned out! 💞

  13. Laura

    Unfortunately I have a not favorable opinion. My husband bought a Vintage Gucci watch that clearly was a counterfeit when we got it for Christmas even though the seller NEVER stated it was anything but a Gucci. We contacted them- stated we wanted a refund and to return it as it was not real. ( Gucci does not make their internal watch movements in JAPAN) 🤨So between the seller… the unethical practice of Etsy even though it is illegal to sell counterfeit items to protect the seller of counterfeit goods … we can’t get our money back. Throw in PayPal which is even worse… Ever try to call or contact PayPal?? Good luck with that…. We have contacted our credit card company to file a claim against the seller selling counterfeit stuff and hope that at some point we get our money back.
    I will never do business again with Etsy or PayPal due to their obvious practice of protecting criminal behavior.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Very sorry to hear about that, Laura.💞 Thanks for the honest comment and for sharing your experience. Hoping it is resolved for you real soon! 🤞

  14. Darla

    My last three favorites from Etsy

    Hand-knitted thigh high leg warmers and she knitted them as high as I wanted. From Russia

    Handmade fractal puzzles. I got the small coaster ones my friends love them! From the Ukraine

    I got a cutting board for my brother but there’s so many they just cut and paste the pattern into the machine and go. My guy did the artwork based upon a drawing of my brothers Lakefront!!

    Hand turned Beechwood spurtle. Every piece he makes comes with a story of what tree he got the wood from. Unfortunately both of my friends were left-handed but they’re using it! His stuff is beautiful!

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      Thanks for letting us know about your favorites, Darla! 🥰

  15. Erin

    These crayon rolls are a great idea! I keep one in my bag at all times. No more having to hear my kids fighting over 3 crayons at restaurants. https://etsy.me/3r6AzQ2

    • Collin (Mrs. Hip)

      How neat! Thanks for the heads up on your Etsy score, Erin! 💖🙌

    The Homestead Candle Co on Etsy are my go to candles for myself and gifts, one of the few candle companies I can burn in my home without getting a headache and the scents are wonderful, the owners offer new ones every month and even have a subscription service for 13.99 shipped I think?
